An idea to change tagging practice was suggested - on an open channel for everyone to read and comment on without hurdles and with an archive that allows us now to read up on things years later. It was discussed and arguments and reasoning were provided both for and against the idea and based on that we reached consensus that it was a bad idea and it was abandoned.

You claim was that:
- this code is trivially easy to implement
- that developers failed to do so "purely because they can't be bothered/not competent enough"
- and presented as something happening right now, without mention that it refers to something
suggested/proposed/demanded year ago and abandoned also years ago

And you topped it with 
"if developers are offended at receiving suggestions on how to improve their software, or even have it criticized, then they should rescind it."

Yes, I am offended. But it was not a suggestion. It was a baseless insult and misrepresentation of
a situation, that is generally not useful or desirable.
